    That's an awesome rig. Where did you get the black latches?

    Good looking skiff. I'm curious to why you're selling. I have a Gordon Waterman and would have looked at this had I not made the purhase earlier this year.
    If it's still available when I get home I'll drive up and take a look.

    Selling because I won't be able to use the skiff for 2-3 years due to work.

    I understand the appeal of the older HBs but considering what you pay for the older models and the current cost of a new Pro, this boat seems very well priced.

    What is the purpose of the elevated front rail on the poling tower? I would hate to have to bail towards the bow and jumping over that.

    OK I'll bite. I've fished and guided for tarpon for some 25 years and not seen a tower like that before. Why don't you splain it to me. Sit on it? Grab it? Stand on it? Use it to break an ankle?

    I can't explain it..... I do not have a clue what it's purpose is. I misread your previous post.

    Its for when you get really stuck you put your feet on it and then you can all most break the push pole with your leverage..... I am also curious what is this for?
